Diversity Arts Project to showcase Glenbard West student artwork in downtown Glen Ellyn

One Community is partnering with Glenbard West High School and downtown businesses in Glen Ellyn to showcase student artwork.

These creative pieces reflect diverse identities and experiences of 21 different high school students; experiences that enrich our community every day.

Each artwork, along with an artist statement that explains the inspiration behind the piece, are being hosted at business window fronts located in downtown Glen Ellyn through the end of April.

Take a sneak peek on the website ( before heading out to experience them in person.

The goal of the Diversity Arts Project is to bring to the community youth voices that capture their varied perspectives, and allow us to experience and appreciate them. The public can view the art pieces in the Glen Ellyn Central Business District (along Main Street, Crescent Boulevard, Pennsylvania Avenue, and Forest Avenue).

See these creative pieces that highlight the richness of our multi-faceted village, through the art strokes of those who will lead our society in the future.
